Hello! Thanks for visiting! Please allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Ray Shiu and I am a self taught, freelance photographer. I prefer the photo journalistic / documentary approach to making my images, meaning that I like shooting candidly as life (or events) unfold.
Photography, to me, is an aesthetic accounting of my time on earth. Watching, waiting, capturing and sharing moments of significance is what I endeavor to do, every time I pick up my camera.
Imagery wise, thus far, I've earned the Licentiateship, Associateship & Fellowship Distinctions from the Photographic Society of Singapore. I've been fortunate enough to have images published by news outlets (print and online), e-zines, blogs as well as having images included in books and exhibitions. You can view those images in these galleries.
In direct contrast to my "as real as it gets" style of image making, a fast growing hobby of mine is artistic rendering. When I see one of my photos, sometimes inspiration pushes me to render it in a way that's totaly artistic as opposed to journalistic . To illustrate what I mean, here's my global warming polar bear.
Should you have any questions, concerns or requests please don't hesitate to drop me a line.
Thank you for your support, time and attention. Please enjoy...
